Federal Elections kept Canberra in the spotlight for most of 2013, but the issues that will most affect the market in 2014 extend well beyond ballots and political personalities

    I think this article have sum it up well. Over supply of properties, reduction of employment and house is becoming more affordable (aka cheaper).

    Of course OVER SUPPLY is the main reason. Does LDA act responsibly? Why LDA released so many lands in just last few years? Thats the reason for over supply. Now who is the sufferer, LDA? Of course NOT, general public. Does LDA care about general public? Find answer by yourself.

    Anno, Are you suggesting the government should restrict supply to ARTIFICIALLY increase prices or maintain high prices???

    That is not what Annon is suggesting and you are thus creating a strawman argument. It is absolutely possible for the LDA to responsibly manage land release to minimise any distortion to the market. LDA has been primarily focused on promoting development, investor opportunities and boosting gov receipts.

    Define "responsibly" Strawman - does the LDA have to follow a policy that keeps prices at the already inflated point they are now? A fall in real estate prices only hurts the speculators - not the general public. The general public in general benefits from a reasonable correction in real estate prices as it makes one of our key expenses more affordable.

    Increasing housing affordability means irresponsible LDA? WTF!
